The Most-Overlooked Food Group in Ketogenic and Low-Carb Diets
When you hear about ketogenic diets, what foods come to mind first?
Eggs... Bacon... Butter? Sure!
But what about vegetables? Not so much.
It’s no secret that eating vegetables provides essential nutrients for the overall health and maintenance of your body. After all, vegetables are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fiber, folate (folic acid), vitamin A, and vitamin C.
So why should a low-carb or ketogenic diet NOT include a healthy daily dose of veggies?
One of the biggest misconceptions about the keto diet is that it gives you permission to eat as much bacon and fat as you want, while neglecting colorful and nutrient packed veggies.
This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Nutrient-dense and delicious, low carb vegetables should be a staple in any eating plan… including keto!
Plus, if you want to avoid constipation, which is a common keto side effect, veggies are a must.
What Veggies Should I Be Eating?
Every vegetable is different in terms of its nutrition and macros. To get the most health benefits, try routinely mixing cruciferous and leafy veggies into your keto diet. Cruciferous veggies – like cauliflower, broccoli, and brussels sprouts – are a great choice for the keto diet since they are full of fiber and nutrients but aren’t loaded with carbs. Arugula, kale and spinach are also perfect for keto, since they are leafy nutrient-packed veggies with an abundance of vitamins and minerals that provide antioxidant protection.
The Benefits of Frequently Consuming Veggies on a Keto Diet
Many people don’t realize just how important vegetables are to a ketogenic or low-carb diet. Here are just a few of the ways you’ll benefit by incorporating more veggies into your daily meals:
● Reduce inflammation
● Help maintain a healthy weight
● Increase energy
● Promote detoxification
● Increase mental clarity
● Balance blood sugar
● Strengthen the immune system
